Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Many poems tell stories. While ‘lyric narratives’ may not be as elaborate in depth and scope as regular prose tales, they still share with them some of their basic structural characteristics. As any literary genre, poetry also taps into cultural narratives, constructing, echoing and refuting ideological, normative and aesthetic models of the day.
This seminar looks at
1) the specific ways in which poems tend to implement narrativity
2) the specific ways in which poems use narrativity as a meaning-making device
3) a broad scope of poetry from the sixteenth-century sonnet to twenty-first-century Instagram-poetry for its engagement with and aesthetic rejection of mainstream thought (cf. Adorno 1958).
